GM-UAW Talks Resume

DETROIT (AP) -- Contract talks between the United Auto Workers and General Motors have resumed, but a deal could still be days away.

Both sides have reported progress, but a person who was briefed on the talks said it's taking a lot of time to reach an agreement on certain details. Those include changes GM is seeking in work rules and job classifications, as well as financial issues.

A GM spokeswoman says talks resumed this morning after about 10 hours of negotiations yesterday and last night.

GM's four-year contract with the UAW was due to expire last week. But the union extended it on an hour-by-hour basis as the two sides talked through the weekend, including a 16-hour bargaining session Sunday.
